Abstract: Electronics assembly involves numerous complex processes that make up an even more complex system. Unfortunately, few assemblers view their assembly processes as a system and even fewer establish a continuous improvement plan to monitor and improve their assembly system’s performance. The purpose of this paper will be to present a simple plan to assess, improve and monitor the performance of your assembly processes.

Key words: line optimization, continuous improvement, process modeling, process improvement.
